How to Play Hysteria on Bass (10 Simple Steps + Tabs)

Thanks again for the kind words @eric.kiser @TNKA36 and @Wombat-metal

They also gave this feed back that there was absolutely no problem about, technique, tone or feel of the playing. All three bass players were incredibly well prepared (there was a long vacation break for everyone)… In the end it was super hard for them to choose.

I think they might have gone for someone with at least some live experience. Also the age might have been a problem as well since both the drummer and guitarist were under 25. The original post was looking for someone under 35 (I am 37 years old)…

In any case many people around me with years of experience told me that this happens a lot… Things can go wrong also afterwards after a couple of months etc…

All this experience made me realize that I am not the same guy from 6 months back that “just wants to play with others and take on any challenge just for the sake of it” anymore. I really need dedication to a well defined project…

Let’s see what is behind the next door!

@Fahri I find these words very inspiring and speaks volumes for the type of person you are. Your performance was great and I’m sure you’ll end up playing with a group of like minded people, with whom you gel and love spending time and making music with.

Just remember this: 1986, Les Claypool auditioned for Metallica and got rejected.

I watched a concert and he talked about this.

They had just finished playing a very Les Claypool version of Staying Alive by the Bee Gees and he said, “For those of you wondering why I didn’t get that Matallica gig, it was because of shit like that.”

Great attitude, don’t let this take the wind out of your sails, you are on fire, you have been doing a lot of great work, with much progress that is well documented. keep at it, it might take 20 misses before you hit the ball, but reset assured, you will hit the ball, and when you do, you will hit it out of the park.
